Note from Bob Bridger who sent the photos:
Margot,
I believe the man in the chair without a hat is Daniel Everette "Evie" Floyd who was the father of Evie Mae "Sallie"Floyd, the relative that gave me the photos. She had no idea who any of the people were. The other is a mystery.
My guess is the man with the hat is Sherman Floyd. Both of these are sons of James Everette Floyd.

    HI!

    I am a DRAKE researcher and came here looking for information about Penuel Floyd.
    I see there has been some prior discussion on this list which I cannot find regarding a theory about Penuel and the Drakes.

    Penuel Floyd was mentioned in the 1785 Nash Co estate papers of Nathaniel Drake along with Delilah. An old family letter states that Nathaniel Drake married Delilah Floyd--of this I think there can be no doubt.

    I had assumed that Penuel must have been Delilah's brother, but perhaps from what has been posted he was her (natural) son.

    It gets more interesting, for Nathaniel Drake, son of Nathaniel, calls Penuel his
    "brother-in-law" and also mentions his "brother" Diocletian Drake Floyd in his will. This "brother" Diocletian was known as
    Dyer Drake and left descendants under the surname Drake. Based on this data I had guessed that perhaps Dyer was a natural child of Nathaniel Drake and Delilah Floyd born before their marriage. Perhaps there was more than one, if she had a base-born child named Penuel!! What if Penuel is a (sort-of)sound-alike for Nathaniel?

    Would like to hear more about the theory I missed, for I am trying to work out the Nathaniel Drake tree.
    Thanks.

    /Charles.

Dolphin Ward Floyd gave his life in defending the Alamo 6 March 1836. He was either killed during the battle or murdered by Santa Ana afterwards.

Dolphin Floyd departed North Carolina 22 Nov 1825 and eventually arrived at the settlement of Gonzales in the DeWitt Colony (Eventually to become Texas). He was a member of the Gonzales Rangers which came to the DeWitt Colony in 1832-33 from Alabama.

Dolphin Ward Floyd was born 6 March 1804 in Nash CO NC.
He was the son of Thomas Penuel Floyd (1765-1815) and Mary Sarah Beckwith (1769-1883) who lived in Nash CO NC.

Dolphin had a sister Sarah and brothers John, Penuel, and Thomas B. in Alabama who had lost contact with him until a letter from Thomas B. reached his remarried widow, Esther Berry House Floyd Clark in 1855. Dolphin had been a resident of Gonzales, of the DeWitt Colony, which would eventually become the Republic of Texas and later the State of Texas.

Dolphin Floyd had married the widow Esther Berry House (1804-1870) in Gonzales on 26 April 1832. She was the daughter of one of the earliest residents of DeWitt Colony, Francis Berry (1760-1853) who came with a family of six from Missouri in 1825.

Dolphin and Esther had children John W Floyd and Elizabeth Whitfield Floyd, the latter born 16 April 1836 after Dolphin Floyd's death while the family was fleeing east on the Runaway Scrape.

Widow Esther House Berry Floyd later married Capt John Clark of Kentucky in 1838 who was listed as agent for Dolphin Floyd and Isaac House, both deceased husbands of his wife Esther on the Gonzales tax rolls of 1838. Floyd County was named in honor of Dolphin Floyd.

Dolphin Floyd's horse was commandeered to carry messages and requests for reinforcements from the Alamo on to San Felepe de Austin from Gonzales as indicated by the following filed by Floyd in the Alamo on 2 March 1836:
"Appraised by the undersigned: a horse belonging to Dolphin Floyd taken from him for govt use valued seventy five dollars. Gonzales August 23rd 1836. I.A. Eggleston (signed) James Gipson (signed). A document "Recd of John W Moody a draft in favor of Dolphin Floyd for $75.00 on account of which I promised to keep him harmless. March 1836. John Fisher (signed)."

Burial*circa 1825 He was buried circa 1825 at Pulaski County, GA, The graves of Fedrick and Mourning were indeed located beside the road on the old Green Perry farm/plantation on State Rd. 26 (Uchee Trail) very near Cochran, Bleckley Co. Ga. I don't know what other graves might have been there. Unfortunately, the graves were destroyed several years ago during a land clearing operation. This information was imparted to me directly in a face to face meeting by Welch Perry, son of Green Perry. Welch Perry was living at the time, two or three miles above the site of the old cemetery and personally accompanied me to show me the site. Mr. Perry said that he had leased the property to his nephew, Byrd Perry, then an employee at Middle Georgia College in Cochran. Byrd Perry subsequently had the land cleared and destroyed the graves according to his uncle, Welch. This was done by George A. Thompson, Grading Contractor, Eastman Ga.
Here is another message from Jerry Floyd:
Following is the word for word comments by me in a letter dated Aug. 21,1986, to Don Floyd: "I think it was in April [1986] when I paid Welch Perry a visit. I went to his house and met an old lady at the door. She went back inside to get Mr. Perry while I waited on the front porch. In a few minutes Mr. Perry came out and greeted me. He is a nice, very friendly sort of man. We had agood conversation which mostly concerned the graves of Fedrick & Mourning,and apparently some others. To get right to the point, Mr. Perry took me to the spot where the graves were. The graves have all been plowed over. There is no sign of anygrave save for three fairly large trees left standing at the site where Mr.Perry said he remembered seeing the old graves. He told me that he no longer owns the land but it is owned by his nephew, Byrd Perry, who teaches at Middle Georgia College in Cochran. Mr. Perry says that his nephew had leased the land to someone. Either Byrd Perry or the lessee, I'm not sure which, had the land cleared - graves and all. Welch told me the name of the person who actually plowed over the graves. The man was a, Thompson, who operates a land clearing outfit in Eastman. I looked the man up in the Eastman phone book just to see if he was listed but I didn't call him. The man goes by an initial (1st & middle) then the name, Thompson. I looked all around the area where the trees stood to try and find a part of a headstone or something of interest. Nothing. I don't know if all of this is of any use or value. Maybe I'm wasting ink telling you about it. Apparently the graves are gone forever. Welch Perry expressed himself to me by saying what a shame and disgrace it was for someone to plow up a cemetery."
Margot, it sounds to me as if Wayne and I are talking about two different locations. The spot Welch Perry showed me is right beside the road, maybe 15 or 20 yards. There is no creek or water anywhere near. There is a bottom beyond the rise in topography where I think there is a very small creek within sight of the cemetery site but it is a fair distance away. This little creek runs across the land and under Ga. Hwy. 26. I do not recall seeing any ten or eleven year old pine trees on the land around there. There might have been some small pines on the property but if so,they were a good distance away from the cemetery site.
The first time I ever heard about this old cemetery was when my aunt Mae Floyd, my daddy's sister who died a couple years ago in her 80s, related her memory to me of Ruth (Bedeaux) Perry, wife of Green Perry, telling my grandfather Floyd about the cemetery and that he needed to go to the cemetery and clean it up. Aunt Mae was a young girl at the time but she heard Mrs. Perry tell my grandfather about it. The cemetery was on the Perry property which apparently, at one time belonged to Fed & Mourning but I can't be sure about this. Mrs. Perry, in talking to my grandfather had referred to the graves as, "your grandparents graves." My grandfather's father was Washington J. Floyd who is buried in Dodge Co. so, Mrs. Perry had to be talking about Fed and Mourning. I think I have a tape recording of a conversation years ago between myself and Aunt Mae where she is relating this story to me. I'll have to dig it out and listen again. From her story I was sparked to go see Mr. Perry to inquire about the graves.4
Picture taken 20 years ago. Tree probably gone, but graves were nearby.
I suspect large tree is on the site of the old Green Perry place which was across the road and up a bit from the Floyd homestead.
This shows the relationsip to the Uchee Road as well as to the Holland property.
Death*1825 He died in 1825 at GA He does not appear on the 1830 census, but his wife Mourning does appear as head of household. No will has ever been found for him which could mean he died unexpectedly.
The following is taken from a note written by Don Floyd: "The speculation that Federick Floyd may have died between 1828 and 1830 is based on two things: estate records and census records. He was dead by 1830 because the U.S. Census record for Pulaski showed Mourning Floyd to be the head of the household. A July 1828 entry in the minutes of the Inferior Court (now Probate Court) of Pulaski County showed this: “A return of the expenditures on the estate of David Duhart deceased made by Furney F. Gatlin adm on the estate of D. Duhart, decd. Paid Federick Floyd, proven acct. – $2.00”
(This is in conflict with the 1825 date of Administration letters given to Mourning Bass. Need to get original records and check.)5 
Burial1825  In 1825 at Bleckley County, GA, At the time of Viola Berryhill's funeral in June of 2002 MVW took a trip to find the homested and former gravesite of Mourning and Fed Floyd. The Uchee Road crosses lots 38 and 39 that Mourning gave to Washington Floyd when she went to live with him. It appears that the graves were in the northeast corner of lot 39 on the right side of the road as one leaves Cochran (the road bisects one of the lots). One description says there was once a Mulberry tree and numerous large hardwoods on a bluff that contained the depressions in the ground that were likely the gravesites. A look at a topographical map confirms that this place would be the bluff just above the small creek that crosses the eastern most part of both lots 39 and 38.
Don Floyd describes the location from a 1975 interview with Green Perry. Green Perry lived on the left side of the road and directly across from his home was the old Tripp home (shown on old maps). From the Tripp house about 500 yards northeast there was once a small log cabin. It had one door about 3.5 to four feet wide that one had to stoop to enter. The only window was a horizontal cutout portion of a log about 3 feet wide. The area of the house was about 12 by 14. It had a stick and dirt chimney. There was a wild mulberry in front of the cabin. About 100 yards north of the mulberry was an old graveyard with no marked graves. It was on a knoll that had some very old cedars, hickory and oak trees (possibly its one of these trees in the black and white photo taken near the graves before they were plowed under). There were ten depressions in the ground. Green Perry said he once talked (to someone)in Yonker who told him that some Floyds were the last buried in the graveyard.
Unfortunately, the site was destroyed "several years ago" as related by Jerry Floyd. He learned this information, " imparted to me directly in a face to face meeting by Welch Perry, son of Green. Welch lived two to three miles above the site and personally accompanied me to show me the site. Mr Perry said that he had leased the property to his nephew, Byrd Perry who at the time was an employee at Middle Georgia College in Cochran. Byrd Perry had the land cleared and destroyed the graves according to his uncle, Welch. Grading was done by George Thompson grading contractor of Eastman, Georgia."

Biography*October 1807  In October 1807 at NC Fed Floyd was in Nash County, NC. in October of 1807 as he was named as executor of his brother Amos's will which was presented at the November Court. The Nash County NC. Court Records (Part 2 1804-1815) contain a few references to Fed Floyd which illuminate his life. The are as follows: 1804 A deed of sale from Floyd, John and Mary Parker, Jordan Bass, William Bridgers to Walter Massingale. (It is possible this is a sale of property they all inherited from Abraham Bass.) Nov. 1805 "Ordered that the following hands be added to the overseer of the road from ______? to Willis Webbs (to west) Jessee ( ) ____Walker, Fred Floyd_____ 1806.

ADMINISTRA*12 November 1825  On 12 November 1825 at GA Mourning Floyd applied for letters of administration on her husband's estate. The following is from an e-mail sent by Jerry Floyd in June of 2001. Its the first official statement about Fed Floyd's death that MVW has seen. Also, Don Floyd said that he searched many times without finding such information. It might be a good idea to get a copy of this book and double check. or better yet write to Pulaski County for copy of document: "And Whereas MOURNING FLOYD applies for letters of administration on the estate of FREDERICK FLOYD,
late of said county, deceased. Given under my hand this 12th day of November, 1825.
(Signed) Wesley Yarborough, C.C.O." This was in Pulaski Co., Ga. I found this in a book titled, "Genealogical Abstracts From The Georgia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspaper, 1809 - 1840, Volume Three, 1824 - 1828". This book is by Fred R. and Emilie K. Hartz.4 
EMAIL*2001  "To enter Georgia meant that the Floyd family probably came through Augusta and had to cross the Savannah River, which separates Georgia from South Carolina. The crossing could have been done by ferry, toll bridge or fording, depending upon the year the family crossed and upon the level of the river at the time.
A ferry there was replaced with a toll bridge in 1790. It washed away in 1796 and was rebuilt in 1799. The Savannah is a deep river, but archaeologists say that because of the Fall Line in the vicinity there were shallows where people could ford without great risk." - Don Floyd
To think about a pregnant woman either riding on a bumpy wagon or walking the distance from North Carolina to Georgia is mind-boggling. Mourning gave birth to Nancy Floyd on March 4, 1808, and census records show that Nancy was born in Georgia. That means the Floyds made the trip from North Carolina to Georgia between November 6, 1807, when Amos Floyd’s will was probated and the day Nancy was born – a four-month period.
I later go on to speculate that the reason for the winter trip was better visibility (no leaves on trees), which probably was needed so that they could be on the lookout for Indians and and whites who might having robbery on their minds. And while on the subject of speculation, I am now theorizing that the Floyds sojourned in Washington County, Ga., on the land of Parraman Floyd, a cousin. He had vast acreage there. And Uchee Trail, it appears on my map, goes right through that county. Don Floyd.5 
Description*2002  In 2002 at GA Here are the instructions to the grave site as given by Jerry Floyd of Jacksonville. The site of the Fed and Mourning graves is on the opposite side of the road from the Welch Perry (son of Green Perry) house. It is located a couple miles (just a guess) from the Welch Perry place back toward Cochran. Welch Perry, who was at the time an old man, personally showed me the spot where the cemetery was. Mr. Perry is probably gone now but I don't know for sure. Here is the directions to the cemetery site that I entered in my computer right after I had visited the site: "Go northeast from Cochran on Ga. Hwy. 26 past the town bypass road to the intersection of Ga. 26 and Emergency Road No. 420R. Continue on Ga. 26 past Emergency Road 420R and find the burial spot atop the first rise in the land toppography about a quarter mile on the right hand side of the road."
At the time I was there I saw a fairly large tree standing alone directly across the road from the site. I'm not sure but I think it was a Chinaberry. This looked as if maybe there was once a house on the site because it was fairly cleared around the area. Across the road where the cemetery was, the land had been cleared and there was knee high weed vegetation growing up over the large field but there was no large trees. My memory is getting fuzzy about it but it seems there was 4 or 5 medium sized trees in the immediate vacinity of the cemetery site. Maybe they were maples, sweet gum, not sure. I could go right to the spot today if I wanted to. It was during the mid to late 1980s that I was there. I think I have the exact date recorded but I'll need to look it up in my records. You have to keep in mind how time changes scenery. For all I know there could be a building of some sort sitting on the old cemetery site. I just don't know because I haven't been there in years. Byrd Perry, a nephew of Welch Perry, is the man responsible for having the land cleared and plowing up the old cemetery. Welch told me that he had leased the property to his nephew who subsequently hired George Thompson Heavy Equipment Land Clearing Co. in Eastman (Dodge Co.) to do the deed. At last account, Byrd Perry was employed at Middle Georgia College but I don't know in what capacity. I never had any contact with Byrd Perry or the land clearing company.

Don Floyd says the following: "Green Perry, who bought Lot 39 in 1930 and was living on it in 1975, said that when he was young, Lot 38 was known as the Tripp place, apparently named for N.J. Tripp. Green said Lot 38 sic (39) was called the Posey place before he bought it in 1915. He said that a small log cabin once stood on Lot 38 about 500 yards notheast of the Tripp house, but he tore it down between 1938 and 1939. He said the house was facing away from the road but was near the road (Uchee Road). He said the front door was no more than four feet wide, and you had to stoop to get in. It had only one door and one window and the window was a horizontal cutout portion of a log about three feet wide. It had a stick and dirt chimney. There was a well, which Green said he filled in. The cabin was about 100 yards south of a graveyard where Federick and Mourning Floyd are said to be buried." Another relative described the house as being a "double-pen" or "dog-trot" house and with a low second floor.
EMAIL2005  Descendants of Fed and Mourning searched in the winter for any remaining traces. None were found.: Margot: Wayne & I spent a couple of hours on the search. We had some “interesting” observations. Wayne could tell where the land had been plowed or bulldozed. We found a large old tree, which has broken down. There was a slight depression in the area, and a plant nearby. Wayne named the plant, but I forget the name. We felt this is one of the most likely spots. I forgot to take my camera, but will go back. I marked the spot with my GPS. Here is what it read: Elevation: 309 ft, N 32° 26.290’ W 83º 18.032’. I am going to make a metal “probe” to try and find a “hollow place”, etc.
I put the numbers in Tera Server, but it couldn’t find a picture. I may have done it wrong. We found the area of where a barn and the house supposedly were. I did find two old plow points and a piece of pottery (like an old brown jug). I see a lot of “potential” in several spots. The spot is almost directly across from the big tree on the “north” side of 26 (as shown in one of your pictures).

Francis Floyd1

M, #1074, b. circa 1693, d. 30 December 1760
Father*Thomas Floyd b. c 1680
Mother*Joanna Goodson b. 1670, d. 1736
Birth*circa 1693 Francis Floyd was born circa 1693 at VA. 
 He was the son of Thomas Floyd and Joanna Goodson
MARRIAGE*before 1751 He married Elizabeth Bell, daughter of George Bell Jr., before 1751 at Edgecomb, NC; She is called Elizabeth Floyd in her father's will dated 1751.2 
Death*30 December 1760 He died on 30 December 1760 at NC Abstracts of Wills of Edgecomb Co., NC by William and Griff shows Francis Floyd died 12-30-1760 and left wife Elizabeth and son Parraman. 
Probate*30 December 1760 His estate was probated on 30 December 1760 at NC In a note made at Atlanta Archives from "Abstracts of the Wills of Edgecomb Co. NC by Williams and Griffin I find the following: Francis Floyd 12-30-1760 left a will and mentions his wife Elizabeth, Son and Executor Parraman, Cyrus, Delilah, Benjamine, Sadisha and Elizabeth.2 
LANDCONTRA*21 September 1711 He purchased land on 21 September 1711 at Isle of Wight County, VA, A Thomas Floyd and a Francis Floyd jointly bought 150 acres from Bridgman Joyner for 5,000 pounds of tobacco. The land was described as being on cypress Swamp and the mouth of the Beaver Dam Branch and adjoining the land of Thomas Joyner. Thirtyyears later in 1741 Thomas sold his portion to Joseph Atkinson. Francis waited fourteen more years to sell his in 1755 and he too sold to Joseph Atkinson. The sellers Bridgeman B. Joyner and his wife Anne Joyner signed the deed which was witnessed by Matthew Lowry. Joanna's second husband, Mathew lowry bought a 100 acre plantation on the south side of Chpress Swamp in 1711 and Thomas floyd witnessed the deed. This all seems to point clearly to Francis and Thomas being Joanna's sons. BUT I think that Joanna's son, Thomas, had a son named Thomas about whom we know nothing. I say this because Thomas # 1084 husband of Ann and father of Amos, Shadrack, Ann and Fed Floyd would simply be too old. For years I thought there was a missing Thomas and now that I enter the data I am more convinced of it. 
Biography*1755  In 1755 Francis and his brother Thomas migrated from Virginia to North Carolina. (Moved to North Carolina in 1755). Frances bought a tract of 288 acres on the north side of Swift Creek from William Kinchen.
The decision that each made to move 100 miles southwest into the territory of North Carolina and abandon the land of their birth was based essentially on the same reasons that their grandfathers left England over one hunderd years before. Like their fathers, Francis and Thomas were seeking new opportunity, uncrowded living conditions and, most of all, better land. The main crop of tobacco was a great drain on the fertility of the soil and effective means of fertilization were unknown. The obvious solution to exhausted land was to move on to more fertile property.
The North Carolina to which the brothers moved lacked the security and government structure of Virginia. It was a wilderness, isolated and lacking in bisecting rivers that were the highways of the day. In addition, there was not a single good port in North Carolina for its entire coast was defended by sandbars known as the "Outerbanks". These same barrier islands that would cater to millions of vacationers in the 20th century and serve as a major element of the state's economy, served only as a restriction to early settlement and trade in colonial North Carolina. Indeed, the nature of the state's geography served to define the nature of its people. Almost from the beginning the citizens of North Carolina were a different breed. They were a self-dependent group who did not need easy ties to the homeland for commerce or social order. They were the perfect pioneers able to live off their wits and skills and in fact prefering it that way. Eventually, they would press harder against the frontiers driving them into Georgia, Alabama and then to the west.
A visit to North Carolina in the early 1700's would introduce us to a hardy group of people who valued privacy and freedom from the too-long arm of law and government. For them it was better to take a chance with the wilderness than to endure the ever increasing beauracracy of civilization. The isolation of rough travel across animal and Indian tracks bred a hardy individual quite unlike the Virginia planters living along the broad river highways with easy access to the world.3 
ADMINISTRA24 March 1761  On 24 March 1761 at NC Will of Francis Floyd proved by Mathew Lowry (his half brother) Also Thomas Floyd (his full brother)was appointed administrator of the estate of the deceased.4

Mother*Mourning Bass b. c 1790, d. b 1860
ChartsWILLIAM BASSE
Birth*23 January 1824 Francis Mary Ann Floyd was born on 23 January 1824 at Pulaski County, GA.2 
 She was the daughter of Federick (Fed) Floyd and Mourning Bass
MARRIAGE*26 October 1848 She married James Patrick Wardlow, son of Cynthia (?), on 26 October 1848 at GA James Wardlow seems to come from a family well established in Jones County Georgia as his mother Cynthia is shown as a head of household there in 1830. There is no way to know how James ended up in Pulaski County married to Francis Mary Ann. The couple did not appear on the 1860 census anywhere in Georgia, but they reappear in 1870 in Jones County living with Cynthia. 
Death*after 1877 She died after 1877 She was alive in 1877 when her husband paid a tax of fifty seven cents on her behalf. Receipt for tax is in MVW file. 
Biography*  The eleventh and last child of Fed and Mourning Floyd, Francis Mary Ann was born January 23, 1824 eleven years after the Floyds moved to Georgia from North Carolina. Francis is an important character in the story for two reasons. First, her name hauntingly reflects the several men named Frances Floyd who lived in Isle of Wight County, Virginia and then in North Carolina nearly a century before her birth. Possibly this is evidence of a strong oral tradition in the family. Could it be that Fed and Mourning had heard tales of ancestors and chose this name for their child in remembrance of a ancestor? (One wonders if Francis was aware of the origins of her name?)
The second and perhaps most important role that Francis played in the family was her wish to preserve in writing some details of the family she knew. In 1848 Francis Floyd married James Wardlaw of Pulaski County. At some point near this date she acquired a Bible and out of a sense of history and wishing to keep a record she became the first family member to have both the inclination and the ability to set facts in writing. On a page of the family Bible she carefully recorded the names and birthdates of all her brothers and sisters. In time her record would serve as the positive link between the Floyds of Georgia and the Floyd and Bass families of North Carolina. Without the notations in Francis Mary Ann's bible a great portion of the information on the Floyd family would have died with the individuals because whatever history the Floyd family knew was dispersed orally. They were not a family inclined to leave lengthy and detailed wills or diaries and in fact, without the Wardlaw bible record there would be no proof that the Floyd oral tradition was correct. Thanks to the record left in the bible by Francis Mary Ann Floyd it is possible to know that there was in fact a flaw in the Floyd oral tradition which asserted that Francis' brother, Amos Kinchen Floyd, was the pioneer from North Carolina. Her written record gives the names of her parents, Fed and Mourning Floyd and with that knowledge it only requires a short step to find them in the very earliest history of Pulaski County and even back to North Carolina. Francis Floyd is a central figure in the story for she is both a link with the past through her name as well as a direct connection with the future through her careful recording of family details. Thanks to her the story of the Floyd family is a matter of firm fact rather than vague suspicion. Francis is a very key part of the puzzle as well as a strong link in the chain.

And here is 2004 information:I found you through a acestry.com posting dated 8/12/03 in which my gggrandfather William Franklin Wardlow was mentioned along with James Wardlow and Francis M A Floyd. Yes I am Floyd Hill Wardlow Jr's son, his father, Floyd Hill Wardlow was William Franklin's second oldest son. My brother is Floyd Hill Wardlow III. I am 56 and retired as an elementary principal, although I am returning to the workforce shortly. I have two children James Benjamin (b 11/25/82) who is a student in Baltimore at Johns Hopkins, and Jenson Lauren Wardlow (b 11/25/85). She is a HS senior. I live in Americus GA about 60 miles from the Turner county farm were William Franklin moved the family on Dec. 18,1895. Both WF and Floyd Sr were not known to me. W F died in 1940 and Floyd, my grandfather in 1948 when I was just 6 months old. I did however know Floyd Sr's older brother George Clifford very well. He lived from 12/30/1884-Oct 1987. I talked to him often about his early recollections. For example he recalls he and WF riding in a boxcar from Jones Countyco to Crisp County on 12/18/95. Please tell me how you fit into The Wardlow tree? My address is James Patrick (Jim) Wardlow 176 Wolf Creek Dr Americus, GA 31719 In 2015 he sent me (MVW) a receipt dated 1877 showing that James P. Wardlow paid a tax of fifty seven cents on behalf of his wife Mary Ann Floyd Wardlow. It is preserved in the floyd File. His address in 2015 is 441 Flintside Drive Cobb, Georgia 31735 (at Lake Blackshear.) 

Family

James Patrick Wardlow b. 3 October 1822, d. 1890
MARRIAGE*26 October 1848 She married James Patrick Wardlow, son of Cynthia (?), on 26 October 1848 at GA James Wardlow seems to come from a family well established in Jones County Georgia as his mother Cynthia is shown as a head of household there in 1830. There is no way to know how James ended up in Pulaski County married to Francis Mary Ann. The couple did not appear on the 1860 census anywhere in Georgia, but they reappear in 1870 in Jones County living with Cynthia.
